ChatGPT: A New Era For AI
ChatGPT, a new tool that recently had Google ringing its ‘Red Code’ alert, is paving a new wave for AI. So, what is so special about it that people can’t stop talking about? In today’s article, we will discover what ChatGPT is really about and how it can affect our working and living environment.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is an AI chatbot introduced by OpenAI, and immediately gained attention for its remarkable ability to answer complex questions. This chatbot impressed the users with its conversational human-like responses, with details from the dialogue it had with the users. Not limited to answering questions, ChatGPT can also create poems, draft contracts, or write essays. The powerful AI bot attracted 1 million users in less than 1 week from its release on 30 Nov 2022.
ChatGPT is built based on GPT-3.5, an autoregressive language model with a very large database from numerous sources. From the excessive database, the AI learned how to respond like a human would. ChatGPT was trained to not only generate answers, but also predict what is expected when a question is asked. This is done using the Reinforcement Learning with Human Feedback (RLHF) training.
Despite being prominent capabilities, ChatGPT is still in its early stages and may have some limitations.
It can give you wrong answer
Let’s not forget that AI is not perfect and cannot always give you a 100% correct answer. However, because ChatGPT is trained to predict the expected response of a human, its answer can give a very authoritative feeling, even when it is obviously wrong. The chatbot can generate responses with many details in a confident way, which can lead to serious misunderstandings.

The quality of the responses depends on the input
The chatbot cannot provide you with a detailed response if you only ask general questions. In order to have a high quality answer from ChatGPT, you will need to be very specific in describing your inquiries.
Some topics are avoided
ChatGPT is programmed to disregard toxic or harmful topics such as violence, hateful content. Therefore, it will not provide answers for questions relating to these topics. This could be a disappointment for those who would like to research on relevant topics.
Google can discover the content by ChatGPT
If you want to create a website relying on the content from ChatGPT, Google will know thanks to a hidden watermark. This can harm your website SEO if you only use the content from AI.
How ChatGPT can be used in daily life?
During the beta phase, ChatGPT still has room for improvement. That’s why it is currently free to use and open to feedback from the users. And while ChatGPT is completing itself, let’s look at some ways it can help us in our daily life.
ChatGPT can be extremely helpful in marketing as they are great for brainstorming ideas for your content. It can also help structuring and outlining the content. ChatGPT is not only useful for marketers, but also for those who are stuck in getting ideas. It can write songs, poems, stories, or even code for a software.
In education, this is still controversial but ChatGPT can help students with their homework. With its ability to provide answers that look like an essay, there is a concern that it might be used to cheat. However, from an optimistic perspective, the new AI chatbot can be used as a tool to help students think critically.
Everyone is talking about ChatGPT’s potential in the future where AI dominates. It is easy to understand as ChatGPT goes beyond what other chatbot can do in delivering answers. But it is still in its infancy and you will need to double check the responses from ChatGPT. Nevertheless. ChatGPT is undoubtedly one of the hottest trends in our tech future.
